[ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Barbara had a solid career in the world of finance. The only problem was the incompatibility with the way she likes to work and the way the corporate world expected her to work. Like many people I know, Barbara tends to work in bursts. However for a burst to happen, she needs time to not work, to recharge and do other things for days at a time (recovery is just as important as performance - look up the Ultradian Rhythm for more on why this is). A chance trip on a Virgin flight in Australia introduced her to my EJ blog (I was featured in Virgin inflight magazine many years ago), which opened the door to the world of making money from blogs. She read a lot of the articles here on EJ, and later joined my Blog Mastermind program. Barbara decided to take the leap, quit her job, and began implementing her strategy to become a "women and wealth" coach, helping other women with their financial security. Build Your Platform Despite her non-web savvy background, Barbara, with the help of a tech person, went on to launch a blog (EnergiseWealth.com), a podcast and even an online TV show (Femininewealth.tv). At the moment Barbara focuses on one-to-one coaching, charging $2,000 a month to help woman with the subject she has the most experience with - financial management. By the time you listen to this interview her first digital training program may also be available as she expands her business. As Barbara explains during the interview, she finds many of her coaching clients at networking events, however most of the "selling" of her services happens automatically online. Her potential clients study her blog, go through her seven part free video training, and listen to her podcast. This content acts like a "background check", so Barbara doesn't need to convince people that she's worth the $2,000 a month coaching investment. This is another case study that demonstrates how powerful a platform built on a blog can be for almost any kind of business. It's especially effective for coaches, or any person who teaches and uses their personal brand to sell. [Tweet "You Don't Have To Be Good With The Internet To Succeed Online"] Enjoy the interview, and when you are ready to build your own platform, consider enrolling in the next round of my Blog Mastermind program, just as Barbara did.

Today's guest is Barbara Turley. YARO: Hello this is Yaro Starak and welcome to an Entrepreneur's Journey podcast. Today my guest is Barbara Turley, and I'm going to let you guess where she's from by listening to her accent. We'll reveal where she's from later on in the [laughs] interview. Barbara, thank you for joining me. BARBARA: Thanks Yaro for having me on the call. I'm excited to be on your podcast today. YARO: I'm glad you're here for several reasons. Primarily we're here to listen to Barbara tell her story how she's left the traditional corporate career of fifteen years, which is what she just told me. She worked for fifteen years, transitioned to building an online brand through blogging and podcasting and various other online tools, and now makes a living from that doing coaching and is also moving towards digital training products.

Tom rose from a previous life suffering from the mental illness ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). He mastered his own condition and today helps other people do the same through his coaching practice based in Pittsburgh. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Tom's business has grown significantly in recent years primarily thanks to online marketing. Here's a segment of the email he sent me - I had bought your program during a really rough time in my career. I learned a lot, but did not apply it immediately. Things got worse. I was nearly broke....had poor health...very few clients...and less than a few hundred to my name. I was so broke...I couldn't afford to go to my the funeral of my half-sister's mom. It was a pathetic low point in my life. During that time I began to apply the techniques you taught about building an online business, and applied it to my local business and blog, and within 3 months I was making enough to live, 6 months I had extra, and within 12 months I was doing 6 figures. Last month was my best month ever at 30K. Literally I went from 300 bucks to 30K/month in less than a few years by applying the core principles of how you build an online business. Needless to say, I had to invite Tom on to my podcast to explain his story and learn what he did to grow his business. How To Attract Clients From The Internet On Autopilot What I love about Tom's story is how he took what he learned in my Membership Site Mastermind program and applied it to create an automated online marketing system for his offline coaching practice. Tom built a blog and email list that are designed to introduce his concepts to potential clients. This education and relationship building process happens automatically, so when a person gets in touch for coaching they already know him and what he stands for. This makes the "selling" aspect of his business almost effortless. Prior to setting up his online system Tom was experiencing poor results using traditional forms of offline marketing like attending networking events. As you hear in the interview, things really changed once Tom created his online sales funnel. If you're a coach or a local business owner who feels they don't leverage the internet enough for marketing, this is an interview you have to listen to. The same goes if you suffer from a mental illness and have aspirations to leverage your "unusualness" to create something amazing. Tom will leave you feeling inspired, that is for sure! [Tweet "Why Isn't There An "AA" Group For Mental Illness? - Tom Menditto #EJPodcast"] If you want help setting up a sales funnel to automatically market your digital products or services, you can take the same course Tom did - my Membership Site Mastermind program.

Let me introduce you to Michelle Dale. She is the founder of Virtual Miss Friday, a virtual assistant service and training company. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Michelle has been traveling all around Europe since 2005. She has three children (or should by the time you listen to this - she was pregnant with her third when we did the interview), and her kids have lived in a different city in Europe for each year of their lives so far. Michelle makes $30,000 a month in service billings for her virtual assistant company, and makes as much as $30,000 on top of this each time she does a launch of one of her training programs. She also has a consistent stream of income coming from ongoing sales of her information products when she is not doing launches. Michelle is a graduate of my Blog Mastermind and Membership Site Mastermind programs, and I have to say one of the best members who came out of my programs in terms of results. Today she has a blog and sells SEVEN different training programs - one for each type of information product format I taught in Membership Site Mastermind - from courses to subscription programs. Amazingly enough, she built all of this while traveling and raising a family. Michelle Literally Started With Nothing Michelle is a high school drop out. She worked jobs, got into buying and renovating properties and then decided she wanted to travel. She sold everything she had, paid off all her debts and left the UK with £10,000, which she promptly lost on a property investment deal gone bad in Egypt. Michelle was "trapped" in Egypt due to not having enough money to leave, so began researching internet business options. This is when she came across my blog EJ, as well as many other different ways to make money. She decided to try virtual assisting as her first path to an income stream. She hacked together a website using Dreamweaver and Frontpage software, slowly built up her clientele and also met her future husband and became pregnant, all while living in Egypt for two years. From there Michelle capitalised on her success, growing the services business to well over six figures a year. Due to being asked so many questions about what she does, she decided to create a training program to teach others how to become virtual assistants. Following the plan I outline in Blog Mastermind and Membership Site Mastermind, Michelle had a great first result. She launched a blog, built an email list of 500 people and then announced her first training program. She decided to offer seven trial spots for free to test her program out. She sent out an invite to her list and 34 people applied. She selected the seven free trial members and offered the rest of the people who applied the option to take the program for $1,000. She promptly made $19,000, a great first result! Since then Michelle has gone on to build a true lifestyle business empire, and lives what you might say is an ideal life. She runs her business with her husband, she has a blog, an email list of people who love her products, a services business, and gets to live in a different city in Europe each year, all while raising her kids. This is a truly inspiring story, which I know will motivate you to work towards your own success. [Tweet "You Don't Have To Be Fantastic At Sales, You Just Have To Be Fantastic At What You Do"] If like Michelle you want to shortcut the process to create your blog, build an email list and launch your own digital products, my Blog Mastermind (how to start your blog) and Membership Site Mastermind (how to create and sell digital products) programs are available.

She explains how she went from a full time lawyer, had a near death experience, then started an internet business where she has had individual clients spend up to $100,000 on her products and coaching. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] What's unique about this story are the subjects that Erika found herself making money in. She didn't plan it, but she started out as a seduction coach, primarily helping men with dating advice, thanks to a blog she started to track her own dating experiences. The other subject she was pulled towards is EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - or often called, Tapping. Erika started as a private coach and managed to make over $100,000 with her business even while still working as a lawyer. Eventually she quit her job and then created video courses to teach people how to release mindset blockages using EFT. Although at times a controversial figure because she has unconventional views on hot topics like relationships, Erika enjoys walking an unusual path and helping others with her knowledge. You will see this come through during the interview. The Power Of A Personal Brand Throughout this interview I continue to ask Erika how she attracted customers and how she could continuously raise her prices. The answer is in the personal brand she built. Although she angered plenty of people who don’t share her beliefs, she connected strongly with some people, who would go on to purchase her products and take part in her coaching programs. Make sure you listen all the way through this interview as Erika explains clearly how each different phase of her business progressed. If you're currently working a full time job, this interview will also inspire you to see what is possible to create outside of working hours. [Tweet "A Strong Opinion Leads To Strong Opposing Opinions And Even Stronger Fans"] Making A Lot Of Money From A Small Audience Although I have heard of Erika from many years ago due to my own interest in the dating niche (thanks initially to Davide DeAngelo/Eben Pagan), this interview came about because Erika left a comment to my recent popular blog post - Blogging For Money Has Changed: Here Is How Smart Bloggers Can Profit In 2014 In her comment Erika noted that she agreed with my point how most people are too fixated by the amount of traffic you have and not the quality of your audience. Here is a snippet from her comment - The best time period I ever had, I made a quarter million dollars in six months during a time when my main site was getting only 1800 monthly visitors. That’s how much traffic and money were NOT correlated. Erika is a brilliant example of having a six figure business for many years based on a very small buying audience. It's her repeat customers, those who love what she stands for and teaches, who she focuses on and helps the most.

As a side project while working his full time job, he started a personal blog because he wanted to get back into writing. His topics were speed reading and slide presentations, two subjects he is passionate about. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Indonesia is huge, one of the most populated countries on the planet. However it's not as well developed in terms of technology infrastructure, nor is the Indonesian language world wide web as crowded with content resources. Noer of course was publishing everything in Indonesian, targeting his home country. He quickly grew his blog and then when he saw how much interest there was in speed reading and presentations, he started two websites dedicated to these topics - again in Indonesian. He started the speed reading one first, writing blog articles, then wrote a free ebook he gave away in exchange for joining his newsletter. He then created ten free videos about speed reading and used a mini-launch formula to promote his first training product on speed reading. His product is seven video modules, however he only produced the first two, sold the product, then created the remaining five as his early paying members went through the program. I was very impressed to hear this story because Noer followed the formula I teach in Membership Site Mastermind, but he did it in Indonesian, which I think is especially cool. Today Noer has over 1,000 paying members to his two products and over 20,000 subscribers to his websites. This Is A Must-Listen Interview For Non-English Bloggers Noer is an inspiration for any person who is interested in following the blog to newsletter to selling a training product model, and doing it in your native language. There is a huge opportunity in many countries around the world to be like Noer because the competition is not sophisticated. You can capture Google traffic because you will have an advantage knowing how to blog. [Tweet "You don't have to write in English to succeed as a blogger."] Listen to this interview and Noer will reveal everything he does to get traffic, create his products, what technology he uses for his newsletter, blog, and membership site, how he creates videos and a whole lot more. What We Covered During The Interview Here's what we talked about -  How Noer started out with just a personal blog on wordpress  How he built his list by giving away a free ebook  Why he copied the BAB model and decided to give away ten free videos  What went into his first product and why he only created the first two modules before selling it  How much money he charges for his products  What kind of scarcity triggers he used during his product opening launch  What technology he combines to deliver his content and products  And who he has working for him and how he hired them Relevant Links Mentioned in this Interview TedX Jakarta Membership Site Masterplan Free Report Camtasia Powerpoint Feedburner Aweber Moodle WishList Member Digital Access Pass Slide Share Google Keyword Tool Best Presentation Membaca Cepat Presentasi.net  Where to Find Noer Online Personal blog LinkedIn Facebook This is a great interview from a person blazing a trail in a country he can really dominate thanks to following a proven system.

Years later people show up with amazing success stories, making big money, and you had no idea they were ever influenced by your work. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Morgan Brown contacted me recently to talk about a company he works for called Qualaroo. During our email discussion Morgan told me he was a previous Blog Mastermind member and had actually gone on to build a profitable blog. Any time I hear about someone who took action and actually built a blog that makes money using the methodology I teach, I have to interview them to hear how they did it. You can now listen to that interview by clicking the play button above or downloading the MP3. Blogging About Mortgages Morgan previously worked in the mortgage world. He became quite experienced in the field, but did not like some of the practices going on in his industry. He decided to start a blog about it, which he began as a side project while maintaining his job (his job provided plenty of ideas for blog content). Initially his blog acted as a tool to help gain exposure for what he did at work, but as he studied more about blogging he realised it could become an income source. Eventually his blog became his full time project as his income reached the $4,000 to $6,000 a month level. Before he started blogging, Morgan's background was strong in traditional internet marketing, buying traffic, etc. He came across my Blog Profits Blueprint, loved it, and later became a member of Blog Mastermind when I taught it for the first time. Morgan then did something most people do not; he applied what he learned. As you will hear in the interview, Morgan would learn about powerful techniques and then go out and try them on his blog. For example, Morgan was initially writing shorter news posts, then read about my "Pillar Article" content format, and changed his writing style, which increased his traffic. He learned about conducting interviews, so he went out there and interviewed many of the leading bloggers and experts in his industry, leading to more traffic. Morgan was also innovative, coming up with ways to improve techniques. For example, in the second half of the interview you will hear how Morgan took the guest article writing idea and super-charged it, attracting over 100 new links to his blog. [Tweet "Why Most People Fail: They Do Not APPLY What They Learn"] What We Covered During The Interview Morgan was quite detailed in this interview, talking about the exact techniques he used with his blog. Here are some of the things you will learn about. How Morgan was able to start a grow a successful blog while still having a full time job (he talks about when he would write articles). What methods he used to make money, starting with AdSense and then growing to include affiliate marketing and direct ad selling using the OpenX ad platform. How he brought on new writers once he hit a content production ceiling, including how much he paid per article. Morgan talks about several of the traffic techniques he used, including what worked during the early days and what he tried after his blog was already established. Eventually Morgan sold his blog to take what was a dream job opportunity for him at the time. He talks about how he was able to find a buyer and how much money his blog sold for. If you want to hear a complete blog success story, which was started and built as a side project, this is one inspirational interview you won't want to miss.

This is an especially helpful skill when you run a podcast about interviewing millionaires - you end up with some very successful friends! [ Download MP3 | PDF Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Jaime has just released her new book, The Eventual Millionaire, the same title as her blog and podcast. To help celebrate the release of her new book Jaime joined me on the EJ Podcast so we can learn about the book, her podcast and blog, and also how she currently makes a living. From $70,000 In Debt To Making $100,000 As A Coach Jaime, and her contortionist performer husband (!), found themselves in some pretty big debt due to buying a car, student loans and the usual expenses you accrue in your early twenties. When they decided to have a child they realised that getting on top of their money issues was critical. They wouldn't have two job incomes to carry their debt when Jaime stopped working because of the baby. In this interview you will hear how Jaime cleared her debt, how she started a new coaching business after her baby was born, which led to the creation of her Eventual Millionaire blog and podcast. The Master Of Masterminds During the interview make sure you listen towards the second half where Jaime talks about how she formed a powerful mastermind group. She managed to convince some fairly well known people like Pat Flynn to become part of her group, even though her own reputation wasn't quite as established by then. Her advice on how to create powerful masterminds with super-successful people is priceless. What We Covered During The Interview Here's what we talked about during the interview - We talk about how she met her husband and bought a house before turning 20 Jaime explains how she herself became a coach after working with one I ask Jaime to explain how she pre-qualifies her coaching clients and why she can charge as much as $600 an hour Jaime had 30,000 downloads of her podcast in the first month, so I asked her how she did it Jaime tells the story of she almost gave up on her blog, but after exposure on big sites like Yahoo and CNN, it took off There's some great advice in here about podcasting, masterminds and running a coaching practice, so don't skip this one.

I just spent half an hour talking to my guest. I’m sorry we didn’t record it for you but we decided to actually start the podcast interview and get this going. My good friend Jaime Tardy has joined me on the show, and for some reason whenever I talk to Jaime we just keep talking. So, we really need to interview her, find out all the amazing things she’s doing. One of the challenges with Jaime that I have is actually introducing her to you because she’s done a few different things. She’s most well known publicly online for the Eventual Millionaire Podcast. She also has a great story which we’re going to cover from in debt to breaking free of the debt, and then becoming a six figure earner. What I did realize – or at least I was curious about is she also currently makes a living coaching and consulting online as well. So there’s a few different elements of play. Jaime, let’s break this down. Thank you for joining me. JAIME: Thank you so much for having me Yaro. I appreciate it. YARO: Okay, so did I get that summary right? I’m sure it’s disjointed but… JAIME: Perfect! Sold! [laughs] Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no

He worked his way up to become a director and producer, working on such well known shows as Big Brother, My Sweet Sixteen and Pimp My Ride. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Although he earned a reasonable wage in TV, the income was sporadic and he struggled to build any assets. He began to explore the internet for options, including time spent listening to many of the podcasts in the archives here on Entrepreneurs-Journey and my two free reports, The Blog Profits Blueprint and Membership Site Masterplan. Thanks to his work studying resources available on the internet and hearing so many case studies of people who were making money online, Jules built up a strong theoretical framework for how to run an internet business. The problem was that it was all theory, no practice and thus no money. Finally Jules took the leap and started his first online projects. He enjoyed moderate success with a blog about the flip pocket camera selling cameras via the Amazon Associates affiliate program, and an online video show about parenting, however progress was slow and the income was far from enough to support him and his family. This all changed when Jules made two decisions - He added a newsletter optin form to his blog to start building a list He decided to create and sell a training product From there he went on to sell about $19,000 of his first training product, using a clever technique to create the product and find partners to promote it. Since then he has released three more training products and sold over $200,000 in the last two years, with sales still coming in daily. How Jules Does It Make sure you listen all the way through this podcast interview. I made sure Jules listed each technology tool he uses to put together his training products and how exactly he is able to find buyers and create product so quickly. He also does something that I think is very unique in our industry - he sells products that are just one or two videos, rather than creating large courses with multiple modules. He still charges $97 for them, and people find them valuable, so there is definitely a lesson to learn in how Jules creates his products. What We Covered During The Interview Here's what we talked about during the interview - Jules explains how he became a photographer and how that led to becoming involved in television production I asked Jules to explain exactly what he did as a director-producer, including what TV shows he worked on (I was geeking out a bit here) We then transition to how Jules left the TV world to start internet projects, including his first project - a blog about the Flip pocket camera Jules talks about some of his other projects, including an online video show about parenting, and details how much money he made from all these early projects We then take an in-depth look at Jule's first product, including how he created it, found people to sell it for him and what technology he uses to deliver all his materials We end the podcast by reviewing where Jules is at today, including what products he has and how he has managed to sell so many training products predominantly relying on other people's traffic. As you will hear in the interview, Jules was a listener of this podcast, and recalls a time when he was skeptical about all these people I interview who claim they make money from the internet. [Tweet "Sometimes Your First Product Is A Stepping Stone To Your Profitable Product"] Now that he is on my show as one of them, he wants to hammer home the point that everyone can do this, as long as you put in the work. Where To Find Jules On The Web iPhone Video Hero Screenflow Video Hero I hope you find this interview motivating and get out there and create your own story, Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no 1:12:09

Lewis Howes was a college football player in the USA, who had his career cut short due to a broken wrist injury sustained in a game. Lewis left the world of football with no income, no knowledge of how to make money or any job prospects. His sister provided a couch for him to sleep on, which he leveraged well by using the spare time to learn about how people were making money on the internet. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Lewis became very active on LinkedIn and turned himself into one of the most well networked sporting personalities on the site. He leveraged his connections to start hosting LinkedIn meetup events in the real world, which gave him an income stream, albeit a very time consuming one. When Joel Comm invited Lewis to come talk about LinkedIn marketing on a webinar, the doors opened to a new income opportunity. Although a beginner to teaching online, Lewis loved the format and went on to become a full time LinkedIn marketing trainer, selling his teaching programs via webinars. Lewis co-founded an online teaching company that made several million dollars over a period of three years. He conducted over 700 webinars during this time, and then decided he had enough of teaching LinkedIn and similar subjects. He took a break, then just recently came back with a bang, starting a brand new business called the School of Greatness, which began with a podcast, and has now grown into a coaching program. As you will hear during this interview, the school is more like a movement that Lewis is proud to lead, than just a training course. [Tweet "What dream could you achieve if you told the world you would get it done in 30 days?"] Inspiration And The Practical All Wrapped Into One Interview This interview begins with Lewis explaining what he is up to today and some of the key highlights behind the principles he runs his life on (including how he learned to play the guitar and salsa dancing using immersion). We then recap his career in the usual Entrepreneurs Journey Podcast style. During the second half of the interview, things get very practical. Lewis explains exactly how he makes money and teaches other people to make money online, primarily using Webinars as the main marketing tool. He breaks down what tools he uses to build his email list, take payments, run his membership site and conduct his webinars. Here are some of the other things we talked about... How Lewis learned to play the guitar, salsa dancing and how he become a professional handball player. Lewis offers two examples of members in his program and how they have gone on to quickly earn thousands of dollars online. We also hear the different income streams Lewis currently personally has, including advising startups, a podcast, his coaching program and other various sources.

Today’s story is from Lewis Howes who has a very interesting background.

He started a gym in his hometown, then when he hit growth limitations combined with the unfortunate collapse of the roof in his building, decided to go online and sell digital training products. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] He began by recording his training sessions to create a product and then threw himself deep into the world of internet marketing. Fast forward to today and Dan is making $45,000 in sales per month online promoting a range of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu digital products, with a sophisticated email marketing sales funnel and segmentation strategy. This is a LONG interview - over one hour and fifteen minutes - where Dan breaks down many of the key elements that make his business work. If you have ever wanted to take your offline practice or service business and transform it into an online digital training product business, you MUST listen to this. Dan was very generous with his time and open to all my questions. As a result, we got to really pull the curtain back and see how Dan does what he does. Dan's Survey During the interview Dan talked about how he basically "forces" his subscribers to fill out a survey so he can discover the motivation behind why a person has joined his email newsletter. Using the data he gets from the survey, he can then send tailored messages to certain segments with special offers for his products. This has proven to be a very effective strategy, enabling Dan to convert many more of his subscribers into paying customers. As we promised on the podcast, here is an example survey Dan uses - What We Covered During The Interview There are some absolute gold nugget techniques in this interview. In particular pay attention to how Dan first got traffic to his new product (this is something I have never heard anyone else do, and I have done a lot of interviews!) and his email segmentation techniques to increase sales. Here are some of the things we talked about... Dan explains how he became a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu figher and teacher, specialising in techniques for smaller people and how he opened a Gym to fund his university studies. Dan explains how he first created a digital product, then did interviews with top fighters and used them as a doorway to become a writer on many of the top BJJ magazines and blogs. We learn how Dan increased his exposure, including some very clever partnership techniques so he didn't have to become reliant on constantly doing launches to make money If you want to know exactly what "segmentation" is when it comes to email marketing, Dan explains exactly how he does it with surveys and tagging to his database [Tweet "Email segmentation secrets explained by @danfaggella in this revealing Entrepreneurs-Journey Podcast"] Websites Mentioned During The Interview Science of Skill MicroBJJ Infusionsoft Aweber Paypal Sixth Division Ontraport Office Autopilot Screencast Tim Reid's podcast CLVBoost.com First Internet Income   [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] [spoiler] YARO: Hello, this is Yaro Starak and welcome to an Entrepreneurs’ Journey interview with a special guest. His name is Dan Faggella. I’ve just realized I haven’t asked how to pronounce that last name but, hopefully, I’m not butchering it, Faggella, okay? DAN: No, you got it. YARO: Awesome. Dan is a mixed martial arts business owner and a national Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor but, I brought him on the show because he’s doing some great things selling information products in the space of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and mixed martial arts to the tune of about $45,000 in revenue last month as we record this so, fairly well-established information marketing business. So, Dan is going to be talking a bit about that and how he got into what he does and what he’s doing currently. So, Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no

[ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Chuck makes money from directories. Do you remember directories? Those old style sites that list links to websites which you can search or manually dig through? Chuck suggests that you consider adding a directory - like a resources page with links to relevant websites, tools and products - to your website or blog. This adds value to your site, but can also become an income stream. As you will learn about in this interview, by charging a price for a premium directory listing, you can add a new and very passive income stream to your blog. All you need is the traffic to justify charging for an entry in your directory and perhaps a little groundwork to find paying advertisers. Hands Off Income What I really like about this method is that it allows you to monetize an area of your site in a way that most people do not. I bet if you are a blogger right now you probably have a resources page, which you link through to products and services via your affiliate link. That's standard advice for bloggers - sell affiliate products via a resources page. How about charging $1,000 a year for a premium advertisement on your directory resources page, then locking in five to ten sponsors? You just need them to sign up at the start of the year, pay the annual fee, and that's it. You know how much you are going to earn and receive it up front. Assuming of course you have traffic and deliver clicks to your advertisers, this could become a very stable, low-labour income stream to add to your business. It could be a full time income source if your site has enough traffic. If you are confused by any of this, have a listen to the interview with Chuck. We cover all the basics, including how Chuck has made money with his own directory, how he sets things up and how he recommends you get started. Make sure you check out Business Directory Profits, which is the guide Chuck mentions several times during the interview. What We Covered During The Interview Here's what we talked about during the interview - Chuck tells the story of how he first came up with the idea of paid directory listings We talk about Chuck's first website directory, what subject it was about and how he set up a system to make money charging for premium listings I ask Chuck to explain some of the technical options available to us to manage directories and was surprised to hear him suggest just starting with a standard WordPress page you manually update (how easy!)

David, born in Nashville, has been involved in the music industry on some level for his entire life. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Although he started out performing music, it soon became apparent David's true talents lied in the realm of music marketing. David became very proficient promoting his own gigs using street marketing and direct response advertising. This in turn led to roles teaching others how to promote their music, consulting and eventually writing a book called the "Six Figure Musician". Can Creative People Give Away Their Work And Still Make Money? Much of this interview focused on the idea of giving away your creative output - your music, or writing, or whatever it is you do - for free, and how that can lead to making an income. I asked David in an era when music is mostly free, available on podcasts and YouTube to consume on mobiles whenever we want to, how can a musician make a living, or even more - six figures a year? I was interested to hear his answer because as a writer, I am keen to hear how we might also give away all our writing in blog posts and free reports, and even possibly give away our training courses, and yet make a profit. David's answer focuses very much on ancillary opportunities that become available to you, once your music or your writing gets you exposure. Things like becoming a paid speaker, or paid to do gigs as a musician, or selling merchandise, or getting hired as a consultant. There is an interesting topic and as a creative I just know you will love this interview. Go listen to it now. Of course, it is free. What We Covered During The Interview Here's what we talked about during the interview - David talks about his background growing up in Nashville and what his original aspirations as a musician were. We discuss how he became a music marketer for himself, then a consultant/teacher for other musicians We dive into the big discussion of how the music industry has changed and what that means for people today who are trying to make a living from their music David shares plenty of examples from music artists who are making a living from their music but not predominately from sales of the music I ask David how he personally can make a living if he gives away his book, especially if he wants to make money beyond getting paid for services like consulting and speaking This is a great podcast for any person who is creative and trying to make a living from their creativity, in a world where everything is free online.

Today, my guest came to me after I listened to his audio book from his print book. I’m an Audible subscriber and I was looking at my options and came across his book called, “The Six-Figure Musician.” Now, I’m always keen to find anything to do with marketing online. In this case, the book was about how to basically market yourself as a musician including offline and online marketing and I figured, there had to be some overlap between musician marketing and of course, as an artist, a creative, as a writer, as anyone producing anything you’re trying to sell from your own creativity. Those are all similar things to being a musician. So, I had listened to the book. I loved it and I thought, why not get the author, Mr David Hooper on the call to talk more about everything to do with music marketing, Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no

Welcome to Everything Entrepreneurship with Walter and Yaro, episode #8. [ Download MP3 | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] This episode we focus on Q&A, with Colin Gray from ThePodcastHost.com asking us about his podcast hosting service and how it could be a viable business when hosting is so commoditized. Jared Easley from StarveTheDoubts.com sent me an email asking whether you could buy another person's podcast as a growth strategy, which we talked about in the second half of the episode. After listening to a video conversation between Marie Forleo and Gary Vaynerchuk, I posed the question whether I should consider starting a high-end blog services business similar to what Gary and his brother are doing with Vaynermedia. Walter's response was pretty clear about what I would be up against with this business, given his background in consulting. Here are some of the subjects we discussed - How to compete in an industry like podcast hosting when price is the only differentiator What should you be prepared for if you start a new services based business Can buying a podcast work as a growth strategy for your own podcast What about buying a pinterest account, or tumblr blog, or twitter profile - are these other types of assets worth buying? If you want your question answered on the show like Colin and Jared in this episode, just ask us in the comments below and we will reply in a future episode. I'd really appreciate a review in iTunes too if you are enjoying Everything Entrepreneurship. Thanks for listening!

[ Download MP3 | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] We don't have a name for the show yet, and in true lean style, we are throwing this out there to you and looking for your feedback. The plan is to talk about what we are working on in our businesses, what we are studying and learning, what events we attend and people we meet, as well as what is current in technology, social media, internet marketing and entrepreneurship. It's basically a chat show conversation with two guys who spend a lot of time and energy focused on tech and business. The first episode is now up and ready for you to listen to. We plan to keep each episode to about 30 minutes, which should be just long enough for you to listen to during your commute to school, university, job or workplace. We have it in our calendar to record one every Monday Australia time. We will make changes to the show as we get feedback from you. Please have a listen and leave a comment letting us know any questions we should address during the show, what you think we should call it or any other feedback you have. Thanks for listening, Yaro and Walter P.S. As I mention in the episode, these chat shows are not going to replace my interviews podcast. This is just something regular and ongoing Walter and I are going to record for you. Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no 32:45

Apologies for the tiny bit of static that came through in the recording. This is one great interview if you are looking for a step-by-step story of how a guy can manage a full time job and develop a niche site income during his spare time. It's also incredibly inspirational if you are new to this game of making money online. [ Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Patrick didn't do anything unusual. He simply built a website about addiction (which he personally had recovered from) and then filled it with incredibly valuable content from his own experiences and knowledge. It helps that he is a prolific writer, but that doesn't take away from the fact that he had to sit down and get the work done, and find the time to do so around working a full time job. Make sure you listen to the interview where Patrick talks about the hardcore writing sessions he would commit to, producing as many as 400 articles in a month while on holiday from his job! He also explains how his adsense income grew slowly at first and what he did to grow it from $100 a month, to $200, then $300, $600, $1,000 and $2,000. Patrick ends his story explaining how he stumbled across a buyer for his site and managed to secure his dream price - $200,000, enough money to invest and live off so he didn't need a job again, while he moved on to new online projects. And yes of course, he did quit his job. Tips From Patrick: Give yourself a "daily quota" - For example, write every day and you will become better at it and quicker too Know your subject well and keeping a quota is easy because you have lived it Do keyword research within your existing statistics to find good topics to focus on (where the traffic is) Ask for your dream money and someone may just say yes Relevant Links Mentioned in this Interview Clickbank 4-Hour Workweek Stat Counter Chris Garrett Escrow Downloads [ Download MP3 | Transcript | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] Text Version [spoiler] YARO: Hello, this is Yaro Starak and welcome to an Entrepreneurs Journey podcast. Today, I have Patrick Meninga, is that right, Patrick? PATRICK: Yes. YARO: From… Where are you from? PATRICK: Kalamazoo, Michigan. YARO: Kalamazoo, Michigan, okay, in the United States and I've invited Patrick on to tell what I hope will be a very interesting story of how he sold his website for $200,000. So, obviously, it's a case of starting your own site, growing it and then, selling it. I've read a little bit about this, Patrick and it sounds like you weren't really expecting this to happen. So, I'm really looking forward to hearing the whole process. Thank you for joining me today. PATRICK: Oh, thank you, Yaro. I'm glad to be here. YARO: So, start at the beginning then. I assume you've been on the Internet since you were born? PATRICK: Well, actually, I guess, I probably started about maybe five years ago and I didn't have a website. I didn't have anything. I just had an idea that I wanted to make money online and what I did is I started doing some research and I found Clickbank products. And so, real quick and dirty I made, this really lousy awful product and I just threw together a page, a landing page and I started buying some pay-per-click traffic. I didn't know what I was doing. I was just sort of scrambling in the dark and it was a complete disaster. I didn't make any money. That was sort of my first foray into Internet Marketing. YARO: Before you keep going, I'm curious, were you a working man before this? Did you have a day job? PATRICK: Oh yes, definitely. I've been working my whole life and at that time, I was actually working in an addiction treatment center. So, I was working in a drug rehab. That was what I was doing and I wanted, I knew there was a way that people were making money online and I didn't know anything about it so, that's how I got in to it. YARO: So, this was a career you had. Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no 1:00:50

I've been watching the startup community here in Australia a lot recently. This is because of my own interest having a startup and because things are heating up in Australia in general when it comes to tech startups getting media coverage and investment funding. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] One of the standout startups I keep hearing about is WikiFashion.com, a wiki for fashion started by a young lady named Madeline Veenstra, who happens to live in the same city as me, Brisbane. Madeline started the site with her then boyfriend now fiancee as the technical founder, beginning with just your basic Wiki installation and the desire to fill it with all things fashion. It took off and she quickly found herself in charge of a site with traffic and an income stream from advertising large enough to live off. Now Madeline has begun taking the next step, seeking funding to help grow her project and move to New York, one of the best cities if you work in the fashion industry. I called up Madeline and asked to do an interview so we could learn how she started her website, grew it and what advice she would have for other entrepreneurs. I do have to apologise that we sort of geeked out a bit on the "Brisbane startup" aspect since we are both from Brisbane and have startups, but despite this I know you will get a lot of inspiration from hearing Madeline's story so far. Enjoy the podcast and please take a look at WikiFashion to see what Madeline and her community have created. [ Download MP3 | Transcript | iTunes | Soundcloud | Raw RSS ] YARO: Hello, this is Yaro Starak and welcome to another interview with an entrepreneur. Today, I’ve got Madeline Veenstra on the line with me. If you’ve never heard of Madeline, she’s actually the founder of WikiFashion which we’re going to learn a bit about in this interview and Madeline is actually, well, I should check, Madeline, are you born and raised in Brisbane like me? MADELINE: Yes, I am. YARO: Awesome. You sound more like a person from Brisbane than I do so, you’re more authentic. Where did you begin this process? Did you go to University of Queensland like I did? MADELINE: I did. I went to UQ and I started there in about 2004 and I didn’t do anything to do with fashion. Obviously, UQ doesn’t have any fashion courses but, I did Japanese and Economics. And so, I became an economist when I graduated and I kind of just started WikiFashion on this side. It was more of a hobby to sort of, funnel my creativity into something and it just sort of started to take off. It was a lot rewarding than being an economist because at that time, I was being trying to become an econometrician, so very hard core data, sit on Excel all day long kind of stuff. Not very thrilling. YARO: Yes, I remember doing just the basics. I did a business management degree at UQ. The Economics subjects just… Yes, I could not imagine doing that for a full time living. I think I’d go crazy. MADELINE: Oh yes. I told them that in my interview. I said I don’t like Maths and they thought I was joking and then, they gave me the Statistics job. YARO: Oh! [Laughs] MADELINE: Yes. YARO: Maybe you should practice your serious version and the joke version. So, is there any history of entrepreneurship in your background? Did you have the lemonade stand as a ten-year-old or anything like that? MADELINE: Actually, I think I did. I had a car wash / lemonade stand when I was about 13. I put all these signs on our front driveway saying “Free Car Wash and Lemonade Stands.” My dad got very angry and took down all the signs. But yes, other than that, I haven’t really done too much. I think WikiFashion kind of just came about, not an accident but, it was, like I said, more of a hobby. It wasn’t something I thought I could make any money from. It was just something that I think a lot of people noticed was missing as well and they came on board. And so, Yaro Starak: Blogger | Podcaster | Living The Laptop Lifestyle no 28:44
